Tobacco Shops Fear High Tobacco Tax Will Hurt Their Bottom Line


Tobacco shop and convenience store owners are concerned that the new higher taxes on cigarettes will mean a smaller bottom line for their businesses.

 

The price of smokes went up by a dollar-a-pack Sunday, with the added tax revenue to go towards closing the state’s Medicaid funding gap.

 

But tobacco retailers fear that their sales will drop off, either from people stocking up in neighboring states, or from smokers reducing or eliminating their use of cigarettes entirely.
